AES launched installation robot to accelerate solar construction

US power company AES Corporation developed a new solar installation robot, called »Atlas«. According to the company, it »represents a major advance in solar energy technology, making it faster, more efficient and safer to construct new solar facilities.« Atlas was designed by AES through a multi-year innovation process and built in cooperation with Calvary Robotics and other third parties. Based on artificially intelligent (AI), it enables »the rapid deployment of new solar resources at scale,« automates the construction »enabling a safer work environment, shorter project timelines and lower overall energy costs,« said Chris Shelton, AES Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer.
AES teams will use Atlas as »a next generation tool« and »will complement our skilled workforce by keeping them safe and performing the heavy lifting, placing and attachment of solar modules.«
